A Double Dose Of DVD Sales Charts; State Of Play… Eh, But Heroes Flies High

September 15, 2009

Somehow I missed last week’s edition of The-Numbers‘ DVD Sales Chart, but never fear, we’ve got two weeks worth of DVD Sales Charts along with my DVD Sales Notes today.  Take a look:

DVD Sales Notes:

State of Play, the star-studded political thriller with Russell Crowe and Ben Affleck that failed to take off at the box office (it earned $37 million) didn’t make a huge splash in its first week on the home market.  Sure, it earned a number one debut with 344,745 units sold, but it was a very slow week for DVD Sales, and its $5.5 million worth of sales was actually third in terms of pure dollars for the week.

-Sci-Fi television on DVD is a hot commodity right now.  Heroes – Season Three had the best total sales this week with about $11.1 million.  Supernatural – The Complete Fourth Season was not far behind with $8.7 million.  Both grosses are solid starts for the DVD sets.  Still, neither of these feats can even touch True Blood: The Complete First Season, which increased by 44.8% and 11.9% over the past two weeks, as the second season drew to a close on TV.   Thus far, the set has sold about 1.49 million copies for a $51.9 million total!  These sci-fi successes bode well for the releases of CW’s Vampire Diaries (which is already a success), and ABC’s FlashForward and V.  As Star Trek proved this Summer, science fiction is in a very profitable place right now.

-TV comedies, however, did not fare so well.  Two And A Half Men – The Complete Sixth Season found $2.4 million, which, in my opinion, is $2.4 million too much.  That show is awfulDesperate Housewives – The Complete Fifth Season sold fewer copies, though it was more expensive, and it grossed $2.9 million.  Comedies are palatable and widely accessible, but they don’t have the fanboys!

Hannah Montana The Movie continues its solid run, and with almost 2 million units sold, it’s raked in a terrific $33.2 million  for Disney thus far.  But then, does this surprise you?

Bring It On: Fight To The Finish sold 254,456 copies for sales of $4.3 million, proving that there is still an audience for these direct-to-DVD spinoffs about cheerleading.  With a few more weeks of solid sales and an inevitable MTV deal down the road, why not keep pumping out these pictures and finding a small profit?

Both charts are below:
